Does every model need a corresponding Controller and View?

or is there a way to intialize a model in another controller ?
Right now I’m getting

uninitialized constant CandidatesController:Canindustry

TIA

The short answer is no. Just make sure Canindustry is correctly spelled.
Perhaps its CanIndustry if the model file name is can_industry.

Another option (some times required) is to add the following in the
controller.

class FooController
model ‘can_industry’ # or is it ‘canindustry’

end

What Long said. Plus, it looks like your scope operator was mistyped.
Should be :: instead of :.

the model for clarification is -
class Canindustry < ActiveRecord::Base

with file name spelled canindustry.rb

Things seemed to be spelled correctly. I tried adding model
‘canindustry’
and was met with

undefined method `model’ for #CandidatesController:0x8481ba0

Not sure what’s going on .

Just include the following line in your controller.

model :model_name

What are you trying to do? You shouldn’t have to do anything special
to use a model in a controller. The models (by design) have no clue
about controllers at all. They aren’t tied to any specific
controller, unless you’ve hacked something in that we don’t know
about.

If you post the code that is actually breaking, we might be able to
help. Otherwise, it’s just guessing.

Hey guys , it’s working now ! For whatever reason writing model
‘mymodel’
didn’t take and got an exception thrown.
model :mymodel though did the trick.

Very nice.Appreciate all the help.
